Ok so definitely can’t take credit for this cutesy craft, but anything that involves organizing and barn wood- I am down! This is a fun way to “zest” up your laundry room, not only will it offer decor but functionality because after all- we all know there is a sock monster secretly lurking in the deeps of your washing and drying machine. Every once in a awhile we are happy to discover a missing sock, and when we do- we now know where to go seeking for it’s partner!Original Blog Post
Last year I attended my Goddaughters wedding and at the reception I saw the most amazing serving piece for cupcakes- a chandelier! I knew someday I wanted to make this. It could be used for serving finger foods for Mothers Day or any party. I was recently asked to take care of the wedding reception for a Second Cousins wedding coming up this summer. And the Bride wants cupcakes so you know where my head went! Time to look for a thrift store chandelier. I figured I would find something old and spray paint it maybe rose gold but I came across this beauty for $40.00!
Succulents can create beautiful centerpieces for a table, console table, outdoor living space, or to simply place on a shelf. Instead of placing each succulent in individual pots, place them in one open container for a gorgeous miniature garden of succulents. Here's how!
Before hubs worked his reno magic, our basement laundry room started with humble dungeon-like beginnings. It had a typical builder set-up of a double sink and connections for the washer and dryer. Who would ever want to spend time doing laundry there?
I love repurposing items and the barn wood I brought many years ago to Arizona, from my childhood home in Colorado, is no exception. Take a look how I use it as a meat and cheese board for entertaining. Not only am I sharing some photos of how I set up the meat and cheese board but also how I’ve used the board for centerpieces. II hope you enjoy this project and it inspires you to repurpose items in your home.

We updated an 80's style fireplace by using an old rusty tin roof and barn wood from a torn down barn. We added the rusted tin to the blank wall above the fireplace to add texture and visual interest. We used the barn wood to create a mantel. We also used vintage blue mason jars, old books, globes and other repurposed vintage items to create unique collected bookshelves of treasures. We painted the shelves and bricks with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Old White and then glazed with wood stain to make it look old.

With the garden all planted and growing, and a little bit of extra time before the heavy picking and canning season begins - we thought today would be a great time to focus on an easy DIY project using old barn or pallet wood.
Mary had been wanting a centerpiece for our barn table at the farm - and with the table measuring 12' long - the hardest part was to come up with something that could fill the space and still look like it belonged. The answer came in the form of some left over barn wood and a few mason jars.
The best part about this project is that you can create it in less than an hour using some simple scraps of barn wood or pallets. We built ours to be 48" long and with 5 mason jars evenly spaced to fit the long table - but you can adjust the final length to accommodate whatever size you need. ...
I don't think my shoes even hit the pavement as I bolted for my truck. My friend called alerting me to a neighbouring barn coming down the next day, and to get over there pronto if I desired any wood!Well... turns out the wood I wanted was still attached to a ceiling. Yikes.That's when another friend offered to take some down for me. Boy, do I know how to select great friends, huh?The next day I stacked my chippy barn wood windfall up against the back of the house, and then it became clear... that wood would make a GREAT headboard... but maybe to look like a barn door!But with no barn door hardware in sight, I knew I had to fake this one good.A few rusty junk finds later, this was the result!Does this faker faux fool you?
The MenDen project is nearly complete, here is the previous post on the rest of the project: http://www.hometalk.com/7069740/menden-basement-finish-all-re-purposed-materials I added a couple of sliding “barn style” doors. To keep the costs down I used some simple parts from HomeDepot to hang them. I think they turned out pretty cool.
Every year, hubby Greg and I do at least one bigger project around the house. Last year it was a much needed air conditioning unit. This year we decided it was time to upgrade our 80's powder room. I like to do things a little differently, so... Here's what we decided to do.
We’re excited to bring you a Holiday DIY as versatile as it is charming! Debbie of My Patch of Blue Sky textures and paints an ordinary wine glass and adds an elegant twist for a stylish holiday table setting. Once the holidays are over, you can use the conversation piece again and again for gatherings large and small! Let’s see how she did it.
I love making home decor that comes from nature! Every morning, I take my fur babies for a walk in the neighborhood park, it has trails that wind thru the woods. This past weekend I noticed that the parks department had cut down some trees to clear some new paths, whoohoo!!! The creative juices started flowing!
I love the look of reclaimed wood. I'm completely redoing the living room and have this vaulted ceiling that I just don't like! It's huge, bare and icky. I wanted to do shades of gray in the room with pops of teal. So, 100 year old douglas fir, stained in shades of weathered gray and touches of white milk paint were used. Each board had it's own character so I got quite a variation of colors. I like the idea of a distressed wood with a beach-cottage vibe to it. I will be mixing in some elegant features to keep it from looking too "shabby". I love the herringbone pattern and my husband and I decided it would be worth a try. We are avid DIYers, so it wasn't that difficult. Each board was cut to 3'. It's imperative that the measurement stays consistent or it will throw off your pattern. Yes, this is a ton of work. But, that's why it looks so cool! Next week we tackle the floor with silver travertine! I will update the post with pics as soon as the room is finished! If I'm able to move afterward.
Hey guys! My collection of stuff waiting to be repurposed has grown to the point of overflowing out of my guest bedroom closet into my guest bedroom. I needed to take action or else I was going to have to get rid of some of it or find another place to store it until I figure out what to do with it all.I’ve wanted to make my own DIY’ed tiered tray for a while now, so this was the perfect opportunity to repurpose some of my collection and put it to good use!
